How do you look after Gaura?
Gauras don’t need a lot of maintenance. Cut back and divide congested clumps in spring, but don’t try moving more mature plants as they don’t transition very successfully. Don’t worry if dark spots appear on leaves as this is quite normal. In autumn foliage often turns lovely shades of red in colder weather.
